The White Whale

This was a Christmas present. It’s kit for making a clone of a tweed Fender Deluxe guitar amp — a design from the late 1950s that remains popular to this day. I already own a clone of this amp, but it’s been giving me trouble and this kit is a time-proven method of learning amp building.

The emphasis there is on ‘learning.’ I’ve fooled on and off with it for the past month, and it sort of works, but I’m still hitting on it. I burned up a transformer in the process but pretty much know this design backward and forward now. I’ll keep plugging.
